Add traction to your asphalt pavement with the BIG A PitchGrip™ Coal Tar sealer. This is a ready-to-use formula that includes a pitch black aggregate for minimum slipping and long lasting color.

Made with coal tar, water, latex, mineral additives and ore slag, the BIG A PitchGrip Coal Tar Sealer is an emulsion formula with aggregate that will make your black top look great and lasts longer than many of the box store brands making it the perfect asphalt sealer for the job, especially when you need to meet federal specification RP-355e.

When sand is used as the traction aggregate in sealcoat sealers, the sealer wears off the top of the sand grains and exposes a variety of colors making the surface look aged and worn. Our product, the BIG A PitchGrip Coal Tar uses a special slag material that is pitch black all the way through so you don't have the odd color surface like you do with sand keeping your pavement looking great for longer.

Our BIG A PitchGrip Coal Tar is similar to our regular BIG A Coal Tar Sealer, with the addition of the pitch aggregate and a touch of latex. These two added ingredients make for a long lasting and great looking black coal tar sealer.

With this product including an aggregate, it makes it the perfect "2nd coat" application sealer if you plan to seal asphalt with two coats. Coal tar sealers by nature are very thin and many times will require that second coat to ensure you get the longevity you expect out of a sealer. Are two coats necessary? Not always, but if you have an old driveway or parking lot that has faded to a light gray, you might want to consider two coats. If you only plan to do one coat, this product will work just fine too and gives the bonus of added traction.

If coal tar is the type of sealer you're looking for, you won't be disappointed with the BIG A PitchGrip Coal Tar.

What is "PitchGrip™"?

The BIG A PitchGrip Coal Tar denotes the two special characteristics of the aggregate:

1) Pitch = Black; Angular / Rigid
2) Grip = Traction

It's a coal tar with a black, rigid aggregate that stays black and has better traction properties than sand.
